Lydia Gaines

(1810 - 20 Feb 1884)

Leydia was named after her mother Leydia Connable and was a triplet with Obed and Abigail Gaines, all born July 24, 1820 in Cazenovia, New York south of Syracuse. The Gaines family moved to Plainsville, Ohio about 1826, then to Concord Ohio in 1828, to White Pigeon, Michigan by 1831 and Eden, Indiana by 1838. Leydia married first Alexander Berry on July 21, 1839 in LaGrange Indiana, she was a widow by 1842 so probably traveled with her parents and children to Barclay, Iowa near Dunkerton where she married John Ramsey and they had 6 children. Leydia died February 20, 1884 and is buried in Old Barclay, or High Point Cemetery. Leydia’s headstone shows a hand holding a book, maybe that book is Bible or the book of life with her good deeds recorded.
